.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
ARE FORECAST THROUGH THE WEEKEND...ESPECIALLY DURING THE MORNING
HOURS. LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH ANY SHOWERS
AND STORMS THAT OCCUR. THE RIP CURRENT RISK MAY BECOME ELEVATED AT
TIMES LATE THIS WEEK AND WEEKEND.

* A LOW RISK OF RIP CURRENTS MEANS THAT ANY RIP CURRENTS THAT DO
  FORM ARE LIKELY TO BE WEAK BUT STILL MAY POSE A DANGER TO POOR
  SWIMMERS. RESEARCH HAS SHOWN RIP CURRENTS ARE TYPICALLY MORE
  FREQUENT IN THE VICINITY OF JETTIES...INLETS...AND PIERS AND
  THESE CAN BE QUITE STRONG ON DAYS WHERE THE OVERALL RIP CURRENT
  THREAT IS LOW...ESPECIALLY IF STRONG SOUTHERLY OR NORTHEASTERLY
  WINDS EXIST.

* WAVE HEIGHT AND PERIOD FORECASTS ARE REPRESENTATIVE OF DEEP OCEAN
  WAVES OVER THE OFFSHORE WATERS...NOT SURF CONDITIONS.
